First hour: Flynt and Hillary Leverett are the authors of Going to Tehran, which makes the case that the US must – to protect its own interests – establish normal relations with the Islamic Republic of Iran…despite all that Israeli pressure!
Flynt Leverett has served as Senior Director for Middle East Affairs at the National Security Council, on the Secretary of State’s Policy Planning Staff, and as a CIA Senior Analyst. He currently teaches at Penn State and Beijing University. Hillary Leverett was the Bush Administration’s Director for Iran, Afghanistan and Persian Gulf Affairs at the National Security Council, Middle East expert on the Secretary of State’s Policy Planning Staff, and Political Advisor for Middle East, Central Asian and African issues at the U.S. Mission to the United Nations. She currently teaches at American University in Washington DC and Beijing University in China.
Second hour: Former CIA asset Susan Lindauer, author of Extreme Prejudice, has some breaking news…and will be speaking in Minnesota next week Tuesday and Thursday.
Susan Lindauer has blown the whistle on the CIA’s extensive foreknowledge of 9/11…including CIA Case Officer Richard Fuisz’s outburst on September 11th, 2001 suggesting that the “goddamn Israelis” blew up the Twin Towers. (According to Lindauer, the CIA paid Fuisz 13 million dollars in hush money, which he used to build a mansion…in which he is still living! Anyone know the address? It might be a good place for a sidewalk demonstration…)
